Chargers head coach Brandon Staley confirmed the expected for reporters on Tuesday when it comes to Keenan Allen.
After the receiver suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday’s win over the Raiders, Allen said there was a “small” possibility he could play in Thursday’s game against the Chiefs. Multiple reports have indicated that Allen is unlikely to play in Kansas City, which Staley acknowledged in his Tuesday press conference.
Per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN, Staley said, “It’s not looking great” when it comes to Allen’s potential availability for Week Two. And even though Staley didn’t rule him out, he added, via Hayley Elwood of the team’s website, that Allen’s hamstring “is gonna take some time” to heal.
Allen caught four passes for 66 yards in Los Angeles’ season opener.
